Wike vs Fubara: Godfathers should copy Tinubu's political principles – Rivers Govt

Amid the political tensions in the South-South state, the Rivers State government has advised the political godfathers to conduct themselves with respect, dignity and grace.

The Commissioner for Information and Communications, Joseph Johnson, stated this at the weekend at a dinner evening organized to mark the 2023 annual Week of the Rivers State chapter of the Nigeria Union Journalists (NUJ).

Johnson has advised godfathers in the state who want to copy President Bola Ahmed Tinubu's political dynasty to follow his positive principles by allowing their loyalists in elected positions to lead the people without toppling them.

He said: “Those who copy the style of President Bola Tinubu must also copy the case of former Governor Ambode in Lagos. When Tinubu did not want Ambode to return as Governor of Lagos, he remained silent and allowed him to govern Lagos but only waited patiently for him to seek the party ticket for his second term and was denied. So if you want to copy, try to copy well.”

Johnson, who represented Governor Siminalayi Fubara at the event, pointed out that the political challenges facing the governor are part of the burden of leadership.

He said despite the hurdles, people of Rivers State have shown their support for Fubara which was seen last Friday at the flag-raising of 20,000 houses in Mbodo, Aluu in Ikwerre Local Government Area of ​​the state.

He noted that the event resembled a political rally where a large crowd of people gathered to cheer the governor despite the ongoing political crisis and mass resignations of commissioners.
